governor romney that. we had the opportunity to talk to obama and senator john mccain in 2008. he told us because of scheduling issues he couldn't sit down with us. but there's a month to the election. >> can you get it out before the election? >> that's why we have the website. >> glamour magazine, it's on the stands now so make sure you take a look. remember, for more political coverage as well with the analysis, you can check out cnn.com/politics. >>> i want to quickly take a look at the stock market and find out what's happeng there. we're down about 94 and some. our christine romans will talk to me later on with regard to your finances, but something even more important, how the stock market is playing a critical role in what you think about the presidential election versus congress and whether you're going to re-elect someone to go back to the hill. we're back in a moment. when you have diabetes... your doctor will say get smart about your weight. i tried weight loss plans... but their shakes aren't always made for people with diabetes. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shake
the vice president, think again. remember, the young senator obama just 47 years old in 2008 when he faced senator john mccain who was 72 at the time. needless to say, then senator obama held his own. but there's no telling who will win tonight. one thing is for certain, though. they're both equally passionate and energetic winning people over to their party come november 6th. with me right now, the dynamic duo. cnn political reporter peter hamby and paul steinhauser. good to see you. paul, first things first, when we're talking about the controversial romney 47% comments, do you think biden will go there tonight where his boss did not? >> i think a lot of democrats want that to happen, brooke. there's disappointment, peter, i think that's obvious. the president wasn't going very aggressively against mitt romney over the 47% controversy, over bain capital, the tax returns. i think vice president biden is not been shy at all in the campaign trail, brooke. that's fair to say. what we're looking at tonight is, is he as aggressive going after not the guy sitting next to him but his boss, mitt
there. >> you know, i had to laugh. because while it is true, senator obama did not have a lot of foreign policy experience, what he did to shore that up was to bring in joe biden as his vp candidate. what did mitt romney do? he brought in paul ryan who has even less, if you could imagine that, foreign policy experience except maybe perhaps voting against tougher sanctions on iran while he was in congress. as far as that argument's concerned, i think it's rather debunked. i want to read to you very quickly a quote from mitt romney from that video with the 47%. this is his -- this is his foreign policy in a nutshell. so what do you do -- this is about peace in the middle east. you say you move things along the best way you can. you hope for some degree of stability. but you recognize this is an unsolved problem and we kick the ball down the field and hope ultimately somehow something will happen and resolve it. that's what mitt romney said on foreign policy behind closed doors. whatever he says today in a couple of hours, you got to juxtapose that to that quote in the video when
we're going to cover until the election day. they backed then senator obama by double digits four years ago. now women voters are evenly split on the president and mitt romney. erasing an 18-point lead that the presidt had just last month. maria cardona is in washington, or as i like to call her, mcdmc. republican strategist and cnn contributor in new york is ana navaro there. >> i like what l.c. calls me, the solution. >> that's right. we came up with that. >> can we believe the numbers? how is this going to shape tonight's vice presidential debate if anybody is putting stock in these numbers? >> i think the movement clearly come comes from the bounce that mitt romney enjoyed from his performance last week. the question, is it sustainable? look, there's no question that there was nowhere to go but up for mitt romney. because the gap was so big. the question is going into tonight's debate, will it hold? and that's going to be a big question. and i'm going to say probably not. because mitt romney gave us a big opening, even just yesterday where he continued to, i would say flip flo

president obama. >> but a fellow republican, senator rand paul, tells cnn that romney's approach is wrong, that more u.s. intervention in the mideast would not be effective, that our wars have fared poorly. in your opinion, what is the role of the u.s. in this region? >> first of all, we have to determine, is this region important to us? and the answer definitely is yes. because of our allies in the region from nato ally turkey which is under fire right now from syria to israel that's constantly being threatened to our gulf allies. secondly, energy. thirdly, this is the transportation and geographic hub of eurasia. fourthly, it's the cradle of civilizations in religions, it's part of our heritage. we can't walk away from the middle east, but it's a very tough, it's a very dangerous and it's a very turbulent region. and we take risks in being out there. >> former u.s. ambassador to iraq and turkey, jim jeffrey, thank you. >> thank you. >>> tens of thousands may have been given the contaminated steroid injections that are blamed for a deadly meningitis outbreak, but some say they saw it com
